How are different mobile operators approaching value-added services? What are the business drivers behind offering these services – is it just about revenues, or something more? And how does operator strategy differ by region?
Come join us to discuss this topic on our next tweetchat, Wednesday, August 10th, together with Peggy Anne Salz of Mobile Groove and Matt Anderson of Amdocs Interactive (who led another chat with us on the mobile app economy).
To make sure folks from Europe and Asia Pacific can join, we’re doing the chat earlier than usual – 9am UK, 1:30pm India, 4pm Singapore – see all time zones.
To participate, we recommend using tweetchat.com. Just sign in with your twitter account at the start of the chat and enter “doxchat”. Tweets load quickly, and it will automatically include the hashtag in each of your tweets. You can also participate on your usual Twitter app if you prefer, just make sure to include the #doxchat hashtag in your tweets so that others in the chat will see your tweets.
Here are the questions that we’ll discuss during the chat:
Q1. For operators, what’s the real business driver for value-added services?
Q2. Will operators succeed where banks haven’t, making mobile payments succeed?
Q3. Will operator portals matter a couple of years from now?
We’ll also discuss the overall findings of our recent survey of 120 communication executives at major mobile operators across Asia Pacific, conducted with market research firm Coleman Parkes. You can read coverage of the research on ITWire.com and Technology Spectator.
So please come join us on the 10th. If you have questions, or if you want us to send you a reminder, just drop us a line at @AmdocsInc, or leave a comment below. Everyone interested in mobile operator strategy, value-added services and mobile money is welcome to join, so please help spread the word!
